The Pre-Kindergarten Program operates at both the Mirrabooka and Beechboro Campus and is available for children currently enrolled to attend Kindergarten at JSRACS.

What is Pre-Kindy?

Pre-Kindy is an educational programme for children aged three years. The programme is play-based and provides children with meaningful experiences that promote the development of spiritual, social, emotional, language, intellectual, creative and physical skills. The staff will create a caring, safe and stimulating environment that will nurture your child’s disposition to wonder, explore and construct meaning about the world.

Who can attend?

Regulations prevent the School from enrolling a child until after they have turned three years old and the child’s birthday must occur before 30 June in the year of the child’s attendance at Pre-Kindy. Some additional conditions also apply, including the child being able to toilet themselves, with support available through the Pre-Kindergarten staff.

For further enrolment information please contact the school office.
